Item No:                    4.C.3.

 

Meeting Date:           July 8, 2013

 

From:                          William J. Chrisman, Police Chief

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing the Police Department to apply for and accept an Edward Byrne Grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to supplement costs associated with the purchase of department equipment.

 

 

 

 


Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing the Police Department to apply for and accept, if awarded, a federal grant of $12,608.00 from the 2013 Edward Byrne Grant to supplement purchase costs associated with the following department equipment:

 

Item                                                                             Quantity          Unit Cost         Total Cost

Digital in-car video recording system                                3                $4,202.66        $12,608.00

 

 

Analysis:

This grant will pay the cost for department equipment for law enforcement purposes: in-car video recording systems for three LPD marked patrol vehicles which currently have no system. If the grants are awarded and accepted, staff further requests approval of a single source purchase (in lieu of  a competitive bid process) of the in camera systems from Digital Ally.  The City has purchased the same in car systems using previous grants.  Purchasing the same systems will provide for standardization among the police vehicles and allow accessories to be interchanged. By agreeing, the city assumes no additional liability or additional costs.

 

Deadline for application is July 24, 2013.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution authorizing the application and acceptance of a federal grant of

    $12,608.00 and authorize single source purchase; or

 

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact: 

If awarded, a budget adjustment will be necessary to add this into the current budget.  There is no local match required for this grant.
